A Station Eight Fan Web Site
Just a quick note to let you know I won't be answering questions here next week. I'm off to Scotland with my dad. We're renting a car and driving along the west coast and the Isle of Skye.
I'll keep an eye out for Wyvern Hill.
And I'll be back in the office, answering questions on September 8th.
Where did the space-spawn get their tech? I mean they are younger than humans yet they have faster than light drive and mass transporters?
Some of it came from a natural bio-chemical affinity for certain types of technology. They were literally born (forged) to travel in space, for example.
Much of it came from the spoils of war and an efficient and frightening ability to mobilize a war industry to back their war machine.
Good question, though.
Why do the space-spawn require ships if they have molecular transporters?
Transporters are very innefficient energy-wise. And they only work at the speed of light. They are impractical over great distances.
What is the proper title for the N'kai?
Is the proper title for the space-spawn the space-spawn empire?
Is the gargoyles' proper title the gargoyle nation?
What about humans and New Olympians?
I'm not sure what you mean... or when.
Just curious when do you think the war between the N'kai and Space-Spawn will end?
I'm not revealing that at this time.
This could be a delicate subject:
Although the World Trade Center is gone, <:( ,
will it still exist in the "Gargoyle universe?"
(or will this even be an issue?)
I apologize if there has already been a 9/11 "ramble".
I couldn't find anything in the archives.
Well, probably when you posted this there wasn't. But you might have looked to see that a few dozen people posted this question before you did and that ultimately I would get to it before I got to yours. Oh, well. Check the archives again, and I'm sure you'll see an answer.
Hi. I didn't know there was 3 gargoyes movies in 1998. Are there going to be more? email me the answer & put the subject Goliath
1. As policy, I don't send individual e-mails to people who post on this site.
2. You didn't include your e-mail address, had I been so inclined.
3. I don't know what you're talking about. There were no Gargoyles movies in 1998, let alone three.
Would the New Olympian spin-off be centered more on politics and romance?
Neither, really. It would be centered on action. But as with most of my stuff there'd certainly be aspects of intrigue, politics, romance, etc.
I am a Gargoyle fan... This site reminds me of my childhood when I used to watch gargoyle on TV after school.
Do you know any way I can watch them again? I mean the whole series...
Toon Disney, for now.
Otherwise, hold tight for the DVDs. The first season is supposed to come out next year to conincide with the series tenth anniversary. Other seasons will follow depending on sales.
Or if you're really impatient, you can contact the fans and see if someone will make copies for you.
<<Just out of curiousity(I hope to what ever god/dess that I spelled that right.) I was wondering why Sevarius did gene splicing to make the Mutates? I watched this thing on one of the educational channels and it said that humans have little bits of DNA from every animal in their DNA codes. So, why didn't Sevarius just activate the exsting genes in them? Or, did he by that gene splicing?>>
In reference to your exasperated reply, lemme try to answer this. Humans don't really contain little bits of DNA from all animals. Its more like we share certain bits with other animals due to the fact that we have common ancestors. For example, a gorilla and a human's DNA is something like 99% the same due to the fact that we're so closely related. However, there's still a distinct difference between a gorilla and a human. In DNA, a little bit goes a long way.
To make a long story even longer, in order to get the kind of mutate hybrids Sevarious was shooting for, he would have to swap out some of the distinctly human DNA with say Cat genes for Maggie. So in the end, Sevarious would have had to "splice" in Cat DNA that we don't have.
Hope that made some sort of sense.
It does to me. Thanks.
Just curious how does Samson plan to deal with the Space-Spawn planetbuster when he overthrows the Space-Spawn rule on Earth?
It's one of his biggest dilemmas. How do you rebel without causing so huge a problem that they just decide to blow your planet to smithereens? (I don't get to use the word smithereens often. I wonder what its etimology is?)
Anyway, that's one of the main throughlines for the entire series (assuming it ever gets made) so there's no way I'm answering it here.
Why did the Illuminati support the space-spawn? I mean they were the proper rulers of the Earth. If they backed Samson wouldn't they regain control after Samson throws the space-spawn off the planet?
Well, it's complicated, but the short answer is that they backed what they thought was the winning horse.
Hey Greg! I have been really wondering about this one, but keep forgetting to ask about it. In ep. 18, "The Mirror", Lexington had brown eyes when he became human. My first question is:
1) Did you say that the artists tried to get the characters to look like their human voice actors? (I remember this, but maybe I am making this up!)
2) If you did say that, then why did Lex have brown eyes, and not blue?
2.2) Was that just a missed detail?
2.3) Or was that done on purpose, because somebody thought Lex should have had brown eyes?
I guess I don't remember the eye colors of the other actors enough to know if their's were different either, and I really hope I didn't just dream you sayihg that or something! Thank you anyway, as usual! :D
1. I did, yes.
2. Well... I may not have known what color Thom's eyes are. Haven't studied him, I guess. (Also, being color deficient myself, I can't always tell.) And I'm sure the colorist didn't know. It's just a screw up, basically.
I paid attention to basic hair color, where possible. (Jeff Bennett doesn't have white hair.) But I didn't think to check their eye colors.
When, in "City of Stone Part Two", Duncan manipulated Macbeth into seeking out Gillecomgain to avenge his father, what was he hoping the result would be:
a. That Macbeth would slay Gillecomgain, thus ridding Duncan of an increasingly unreliable and likely rebellious former ally? (The result, of course, that actually happened).
b. That Gillecomgain would slay Macbeth, Duncan's leading rival to the throne?
c. That the two of them would kill each other, thus ridding Duncan of both of them?
Well, I'm sure his ultimate preference would have been c, of course. But either a or b were good news, so he'd settle happily for the a he got.
When/if the London gargoyles are revealed, would the human public recognize them quickly to be the same kind of creature as the Manhattan gargoyles? The London gargoyles look quite different from Goliath and his clan, after all, resembling heraldic animals with feathered (rather than leathery) wings. Would it be possible for the human public to initially believe them to be a different species from the New York gargoyles? (I suppose that this question is, in part, inspired by the occasional speculation over whether a visitor from another planet would recognize a chihuahua and a St. Bernard, or a French poodle and a bulldog, as being the same kind of animal).
I like the dog question. It certainly applies here. I don't have a monolithic answer for you. Some would get it. Some would not. Some would have it explained. This is all very hypothetical anyway. We don't know the context of the "revelation" in London. And, keep in mind, London gargoyles are already (as of the end of M.I.A.) a worst-kept local secret. My assumption has been that many people know about these "creatures", but keep it quiet because they do so much good in the Soho neighborhood. How long that lasts after the American news reports in "Hunter's Moon, Part III" and "The Journey" is hard to say.
This is a question that I've been meaning to ask for a while, but kept on forgetting to submit.
In one of your answers last year, you mentioned that, after Raven was driven by Natsilane from Queen Florence Island, he spent some time in Spain and Alaska until the time of the Gathering. Now, I can see why Raven would spend some time in Alaska, since if I recall correctly, the figure of Raven the Trickster is quite prominent in the local legends there. But I'm at a loss as to why Spain. Is there any particular significance to Raven going there?
If I said that, there probably was, but I can't remember why now.
Disappointing, I know, but honest.
What happened to Boudicca after Oberon went all jolly blue giant in 'The Gathering: Part One'? I mean, when he phased out of human form, he just left her there! Wouldn't someone notice a big, olive drab gargoyle lounging about the street?
I assume he sent her back to Avalon. Do you have any reason to assume he didn't?
What was Greg Weisman's major in college?
Undergrad: English w/an emphasis in Fiction Writing.
Graduate: Professional Writing w/an emphasis in Playwrighting.
I haven't seen Deadly Force, and they won't play it on toondisney. I wish I could see it, but I mostly want to know what happend.
There are better places, and certainly quicker places, on the web to learn this info, but on the assumption that a person is still checking this site 20 months after posting this question, here's a brief synopsis:
Dracon steels Xanatos' prototype guns. Elisa confronts him, but has no evidence. Broadway goes to see a movie, and then goes to Elisa's home. Imitating the cowboys on the film, he picks up Elisa's handgun and accidentally fires off a round. Elisa is shot. Broadway takes her to the hospital then hides. Elisa comes close to dying. Goliath, Maria Chavez, Matt Bluestone and Elisa's family all assume that Dracon shot her. Goliath tracks Dracon. Broadway, meanwhile, goes on an anti-gun rampage and winds up tracing the weapons back to Dracon. Goliath attacks Dracon, but Broadway stops him from killing Dracon, admitting his mistake. Goliath destroys the weapons before Owen can buy them back. Goliath and Broadway stand vigil outside Elisa's hospital room.
Hello. Uh, well, this is a bit embarrassing, but I was reading the questions and I got a bit curious. I'm sorry if this is inappropriate. I hope it's not. Anyway, how DO the gargoyles make love, to each other and possibly to humans? I suppose you were trying to keep things clean, huh? *blushes* Well, I'm sorry! I really wanted to know! If you'd prefer not to post it to the whole world but you'd also like to take pity on a poor curious fan, email me at "firstname.lastname@example.org". Thankies! =)
Well, I'm not going to go into X-rated (or even R-rated) details on this site. And, as I mentioned recently, I make a policy of not answering people directly off this site.
The short answer is that Gargs don't do anything much different from humans, except that they have an extra appendage, and wings, which allow them to make love in flight.
After that, I'd say, "Use your imagination."
Have you ever considered working for Warner Bros. animation? You could no doubt do amazing things for a poorly written show such as Justice League.
I would love to work for Warners, but so far no one there has wanted to hire me. But I wouldn't agree with your assessment of Justice League. Admittedly, I've only seen one and a half episodes, but they seemed fun to me.
Havn't looked at the site since december, and now, I've just detected, that all my posts got deleted by Gorebash. Well, doesnt matter.
I just wanted you to ask, what where your top ten and top-garbage movies of 2001.
Hope there comes a new contest soon (by the time you'll probably read this, there surely was one:-).
I'm afraid I don't have a clear memory of what I saw in 2001.
I know I loved Fellowship of the Rings. What else came out that year?
This may be a little weird, but how do you spell the Hunter's real name (original hunter). Guilcomegaine? Gilcomgane?
Gillecomgain. Or at any rate, that's how we spelled it.
When is there going to be new Gargoyle shows on the air.
I just refuse to answer this again. Check the darn archives or the FAQ.
I there a way that you can continue the series in some form or fasion or obtain the rights to use the series from disney
Sigh -- I have never stopped looking for ways to "continue the series in some form or fashion", but so far I have met with no success. I'm still trying. Cross your fingers.
